1 In my 35 years at Morgan Stanley Smith Barney, I have been fortunate to work with many exceptional people. I have met a great number of successful entrepreneurs who have used their wits and tireless efforts to amass considerable wealth. I count many of them among my clients and more than a few among my friends. It has been my pleasure to help them protect what they have worked so hard to earn. I have gotten to know their families, and in many cases, worked with several generations to help them build an enduring legacy. My daughter, Meredith Parrish, and my son Jonathan work alongside me at The Swanson Group, part of a broader group of professionals who are equally dedicated to addressing the needs of our clients. We take a long view here. We look to build on our experience and expand on our relationships to provide investment services to our clients generation after generation after generation. We look forward to meeting you, getting to know you better, and helping you and your family reach your goals. Sincerely, Keith Swanson Managing Director 1
